We have developed two methods enabling the determination of the parameters of QCF of PMB and its fragments from the data processing of observed light and/or ionization curves produced by the corresponding meteor . We have applied them to process two model light curves, in order to assess the capability of the methods. We arrived also at the conclusion that these methods cannot yield sufficiently correct fragment masses.
